Fashion is the way I introduce myself to the world, every day, without saying anything.

Hey there! So, if you’re just stopping by, I recently got engaged and have been writing about the planning process here once a week!

Nothing has ever really made me consider my appearance quite like my own wedding. I know, I know, you’re perfect the way you are and all that jazz. Truthfully, I know Raven likes how I look no matter my weight / stress level, etc. But, I really need the confidence booster for myself. That’s why I’m doing this 6 week program at Bari (which I love, I am so sore), because it feels good to treat yourself to the best version of yourself.

I won’t deny, though, a creepy little voice inside my head that convinced me I need Botox injections on my forehead. All of a sudden I became fixated on “fixing” my forehead. So I asked around. I asked friends who were all meh, you don’t need it. I talked to my sister, who in so many words told me she’d judge my level of intelligence. I talked to Raven, who told me he’d be deeply upset. And that’s when I realized I needed to slow my roll. If this was a potential battleground, I am preemptively throwing up my white flag. The last thing I want to do is upset the dude I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, so no Botox for me.

However! There are plenty of AWESOME things you can do for your skin and your face and your wrinkles that do not involve Botox. For example, this brush, which has saved my scaly winter skin time and time again. And yet I find myself wanting more, which is why I’ve been obsessively researching NYC’s best facials. I asked around on Facebook and was met with so many enthusiastic recommendations that I decided to take the plunge and try one myself. Tonight I’m headed to Jillian Wright for my facial and I’m pumped! I will certainly let you know how it goes.

Do you get facials or Botox? Why or why not? Tell me your secrets!
